High Voltage Insulator
Application ID: 73561
This example demonstrates how to use the Electrostatic interface to calculate the surface electric field of a typical high-voltage insulator. It is shown that the inhomogeneity and the maximum of the surface electric field are greatly reduced with the installation of the grading rings. In this way, the high-voltage insulator is able to withstand a higher overvoltage.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
- COMSOL Multiphysics® and
- either the AC/DC Module, MEMS Module, Plasma Module, or Semiconductor Module
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
